Administration: The administration is strict when they need to be, for things that aren't a big deal and don't need to waste their time with, they are lenient about, but things that are concerning they are more strict about it.

Scholarships: I feel like I wasn't told when the scholarships were applicable to apply to, and whenever I wanted to find one, it was too late. Aldo, I feel as though there aren't many options for scholarships.

Party Scene: I'm not much of a party person, but if I wanted to go to one they are fairly easy to find.

Campus Food: The food could be a lot better. It gets really boring after awhile because it feels like I am just eating the same thing over and over again. One of the reasons I am excited to move out of my dorm next year is because I'll be able to make my own meals.

Campus Housing: I like the floor and the people on the floor! My dorm is close to everywhere on campus! My only two complaints would be the food and the bathrooms can get slightly messy.

Campus Food: If you change it up, there's plenty of choices.

Campus Housing: You will meet some really awesome people during your stay which makes up for any negatives.

4 College Senior

Diversity: There is a bit of diversity. Most of the students that I've met are like me- white, fairly affluent, straight, politically moderate, and not terribly religious. You can find diversity, though.

Majors: The history program is great, and the internship opportunities are good. Most classes are in Ballatine or Morrison. Both buildings are old but decent.

Academics: Being a history major is great. It adequately prepares you for a career in law school, graduate school, or even the general business world. There is a lot of reading, studying, and writing papers-- but the workload is not unmanageable.

Academics: The academics are great! Some of the professors are better than others.

Campus Quality: Great libraries and study spots-- the IMU is the best!

Local Area: It's all great except for the shopping!

Guys & Girls: The guys are attractive. The Southern/Central Indiana boys can be jerks. Stick to the Chicago boys- cute, polite, and ambitious!!

Health & Safety: Some spots on campus are more sketchy than others, and campus police are hard to come by.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: It's the quintessential American college experience. The courses can be difficult, but they are almost always worthwhile. Besides the occasional fatty, most students are attractive and fun. The community of Bloomington is great! It's a liberal town with plenty of options for food and other activities. The shopping is okay, but Indy isn't too far. Add a JCrew, and I'd be in heaven.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Some professors are jerks, but that can be the case at any university. Most professors are great and very knowledgeable about their field. Class sizes vary, but most introduction classes are large while higher-level classes are smaller.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

IU is a well-rounded school, excelling in everything from academics to athletics. The fact that it offers something for almost everyone is the testimony given by the student body; over 40,000 kids from all over the world found IU and have made it their home for four years or more. IU’s campus is an original place in an isolated little town, and while it may be in the middle of nowhere, it doesn’t take long for most students to find something that makes it feel a little more like home.

Most of the complaints about IU involve its large size, and if you’re looking for the kind of school where everybody knows everyone else’s names, this isn’t the right place for you. However, the faculty, staff, and general population of Indiana University all work together to make an otherwise intimidating atmosphere feel a bit more accepting. There are so many opportunities here that your experience at IU is undoubtedly what you make of it. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to gain admission, you don’t have to be a long-time binge-drinker to have a great social life, and you barely even have to leave your dorm room to make friends. Ultimately, these are just a few of the many positives that make the college experience in Bloomington, Indiana the most memorable and most educational years of your life.
